Panel "Use of force and democratic control in a world of unequality : the case of Europe"

The aim of this panel will be to raise the question of inequality in the use of force within European countries. If European defence policies and the building of a Common Security and Defence Policy in the framework of the EU have been well documented for a few years, the question of how European countries allow their military to use force inside and outside their territory and how they control this use of force democratically has been much less investigated until nowadays. Thus in a period where armed forces are not only used for military multinational operations outside the national borders but also participate internally to the fight against terrorism, the question needs to be asked: how do Europeans nationally control the use of force? What is the role of their parliaments? What room is left for the civilian society? What happens at EU level? Why are there so many inequalities in the democratic control of the use of force in European countries? The idea here is to confront the institutionalist analysis (more precisely the historical institutionalist frame of analysis) to different national cases so as to understand what explains these differences among the EU member states.

This panel will welcome both theoretical and empirical propositions of paper. The aim is to achieve either one session of 4 to 6 papers. PhD candidate are encouraged to propose papers. The working language will be English.

Abstracts should be sent to Delphine Deschaux-Dutard at (delphine[dot]deschaux-dutard[at]upmf-grenoble[dot]fr) no later than October, 7th 2015
